What is Classic Rock?

TORONTO filmmaker and lifelong hard rocker Daniel Sarkissian brings fellow music fans with him on a mission to define ‘What is Classic Rock?’ in his new documentary of the same name— out across Canada and the U.S. this December 5th.

“Can we classify it? Should we?” These are just some the questions and complexities Sarkissian kicks around with the genre and era’s most legendary voices, from KISS, Grand Funk Railroad, The Guess Who, Twisted Sister, Triumph, Guns N’ Roses, and many more.

Viewers will travel closer to conclusion thanks to the helpful insights from, to name just a few, Ben Kowalewicz, Country Joe, Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, John Devenish, Jon Gallant, Gilby Clarke, Eric Alper, Randy Bachman, Suzi Quatro, and Bruce Kulick.

 What is Classic Rock?’ will be screened at the TIFF Lightbox Cinema 1 — Toronto’s largest cinema to host music’s biggest question
